2Jurassic Park

Yes, Transformers may have awesome and stylish visuals, but what about the film that made these elements strong enough to inspire movies like Titanic, Lord of the Rings, Avatar, The Star Wars Prequels E.T.C.

In my personal opinion, Jurassic Park will remain the father of recent special effects and I'm glad Steven Spielberg made it possible. Also, it gave us a more realistic approach of dinosaurs and the result was terrifying and breathtaking. - hussaintalib

After 65 Millon Years they were back - MatrixGuy

Great visuals, especially from a film in the early 90's because it didn't have what Transformers and other recent films have today. It was just so realistic.

4The Matrix

This movie is a champion in every way including visual effects - MatrixGuy

Bullet time was awesome and dynamic on so many levels.
Really other awesome effects added too. - lewieboy124

5Star Wars

Hey, ever heard of ILM? It stands for Industrial light and magic and has done special effects to almost all big movies released after Star Wars, including harry potter, jurassic park, Indiana jones, pirates of the caribbean, avatar and hundreds others. Just name a movie, theyve done it! Without star wars special effects as we know it wouldn't exist! Think about it!

There are movies that came out in the 2000's that have inferior Special Effects to this 1977 masterpiece

6Terminator 2: Judgment Day

this piece of excellency and shear of what hollywood is
made in 1991 best before the world knew whats special and visual effects - shawnsoscar

This should be number 1. Because in 1991 is not technological days. It shows how hard to try make this movie...

This movie set a new standard of visual graphics for the movie industry. In 1991 these were top notch and can even compete in 2014!

7Maleficent

The special effects are so real looking.

8Aliens

for that year it was the bomb - Magnolia

Amazing Effects
Insane...1979 was it? Looks more like 2020 or something! Great effects, if you watched it at that time when it was released I am sure you would have been scared to death!

9Titanic

We can't imagine how hard was record this movie. They didn't have ship or ocean or anything, but they recorded one of the greatest movies ever! - TitanicDiaries
